THE EVENT 


In order to overcome the immense challenge of fully understanding the brain, a very fruitful approach is to gather the best minds from different scientific fields in multi and interdisciplinary scientific endeavors. With this purpose, the Latin-American Workshop on Computational Neuroscience (LAWCN) was born in 2017, putting together students and researchers from the fields of Computational Neuroscience, Artificial Intelligence, and Neuroengineering in an enthusiastic atmosphere for sharing ideas, form networks, and foster collaboration. This time, the Workshop leaves the fast-paced life of the big city for a more relaxed take in the countryside of the welcoming state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, in the three hundred years old colonial city of São João Del-Rei, with its historic buildings and churches, beautiful mountains and cold waterfalls, and exquisite culinary.


We are proud to highlight that we have already secured the presence of four world-class scientists as keynote speakers: Jim Torresen (Norway), Michela Chiappalone (Italy), Sidarta Ribeiro (Brazil), and Diego Hernán (Ecuador). Also, we have confirmed that the best papers related to computer science will be published with Springer.


The LAWCN 2019 Organizing Committee is very proud to invite researchers from Latin-American and around the world to submit their best data and ideas as papers to be presented at LAWCN 2019.


 


AREAS OF LAWCN 2019 


a)    Computational Neuroscience; b) Neuroscience; c) Neuroengineering and; d) Artificial Intelligence and related topics


 


GUIDELINES FOR AUTHORS 


The following information, article templates, and complete guidelines from Springer can also be found on the event website https://www.lawcn.com.br/submissions.html .


 


>> Prospective authors are invited to contribute to the conference by electronically submitting papers in English, Portuguese or Spanish, according to the model found at the event website;
>> Best papers that are related to Computer Science will be published as a book volume in Springer-Verlag Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS; ISSN 1865-0929) series. CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings;
>> Papers that are not related directly to Computer Science will be published online in the II Latin-American Workshop on Computational Neuroscience Proceedings (with ISBN) and can be submitted in English, Portuguese, or Spanish.
>> Papers will be evaluated based on their quality and significance of the theoretical and practical contribution to Computational Neuroscience, Neuroengineering, Artificial Intelligence, and Neuroscience in general;
All papers (Short or Full) must be in PDF format and include abstract, figures, tables and references in the minimum/maximum number of pages (according to the category desired);
>> Papers can be submitted in four categories:
1) Short paper not related directly to Computer Science:
     - Length: between 3 and 8 pages
     - Languages: English, Spanish, and Portuguese
2) Short paper related to Computer Science:
     - Length: between 6 and 9 pages
     - Language: English only
3) Full paper not related directly to Computer Science:
     - Length: between 10 and 20 pages
     - Languages: English, Spanish and Portuguese
4) Full paper related to Computer Science:
     - Length: between 10 and 20 pages
     - Language: English only 
>> Papers can be submitted in English, Portuguese or Spanish, but only the best articles, in English, and directly related to Computer Science will be published in CCIS;
>> Papers should be submitted exclusively through the conference submission system, linked in the event website;
>> At least one author must register, pay the registration fee, and present the accepted paper orally in order for the manuscript to be included in the workshop proceedings / CCIS volume. If more than one article per the first author is accepted, there will be an extra registration fee.
>> One of the authors must sign and attach the disclosure form if the paper is accepted;
>> It is encouraged that authors own an identification from ORCID to be included in the manuscript main body.
